Give a cheer for Waltham, 
Make it loud and strong. 
Give a cheer for the teammates, 
Then they'll know we're helping 

them along. 
Cheer the team to Victory, 
Let the colors fly, 
For its W-A-L-T-H-A-M 
For Waltham High. 



A Yearbook of Events 

1942 - 1943 


Never has the Mirror been published in such 
a time of strife as this. Gone is the relatively 
slow moving pace of a peaceful world. Now all 
moves with a speed that is breath-taking. Events 
of such tremendous proportions occur so upon 
the heels of each other that it is easy to lose 
touch with the everyday common places to which 
we cling in a sane world. 

For this reason, this issue of the Mirror is 
especially important, for within its pages are 
shown pictures of people that you and you and 
you know. You have laughed with them, worked 
with them, studied with them, gone through all 
the joys and sorrows of the usual school year 
with them. 

When the going gets a little tough a glance 
through these pages should help to recall old 
times and bring things back to their proper 

Keep the issue of a Mirror of a sane school 
year in an insane world.

Writer of Class Poem 


We pray that classes may be free 

From what befalls class "Forty-three," 

A class that's doomed before it starts, 
A class of "Math" instead of Arts, 

Of boys whose future is but one, 

And that's to cloud the Rising Sun. 

We pray that we may live to see, 

The day when all the world is free 

From fear of war, of pain, of hate, 

From men who drag the world's estate 

From friendly love to strife and shame: — 
We pray, O God, for peace, our aim. 

We pray that those who left their school 

To win this aim, may ever rule 
The future world with care, and thought 
Of justice which our teachers taught, 
And thus make earth eternally 

A place of peace and harmony. 

Berkley Hathorne

"Eat, drink, and be merry, for to- 
morrow " — With her pet 

likes cokes, "any kind of food", and 
cheerful friends — this seems to be 
Mary's motto! At present, her ar- 
dent ambition is to visit California 
and, on her return, come back to 
Waltham High as a teacher and ex- 
press her opinions. Though she ad- 
mits talking too rapidly and other 
minor faults, we all like her friend- 
ly, sunny disposition which has won 
many friends on the Dramatic and 
Commercial Clubs. 


College Course 

This talented little lady may al- 
ways be found, when school is over, 
dashing after her favorite hobby — 
music : records, concerts, radio — 
"Gerri" loves them all. The Dra- 
mati Club, birthplace of her pet 
expression, "H'yeah come!", and the 
Literary Staff of "The Mirror" also 
keep her spare time well filled. After 
graduation she plans to attend col- 
lege, and her ambition — Well, 
"Gerri," we all want an autographed 
copy of your first book!

ing, "Hi Chum," and, "Hi Babe."

dislikes silly, noisy people. Her 
worst fault is being too quiet. She 
is often seen lifting her eyebrows.

"Andy" or "Swede", as he is 
Called, wants to become a boatswain

program as far as "Swede is con-

WAVES where she hopes to become 
an officer. "Hurry up" she says fre- 
quently. She dislikes conceited peo- 
ple and being called by her last

with people. Activities include Hon-

ing friends. 


College Course 

"Wait for me" is Yvonne's time 
worn phrase. She hopes to go to

is in the Tech course and his desti- 
nation is some good technical school. 
Willie's best virtues are never satis- 
fying anyone and getting rid of the 
old "moola", and his worst fault is

anyone at all. He was on the com- 
mittee for the Junior Prom and 
Senior Dance and his hobby is the

ments are the band, dramatic club,

Class History 

("^ REAT events of world- 
^-* wide importance and far- 
reaching global effect were 
taking place as the class of 
1943 entered Waltham High 
School as sophomores. That 
they would vitally influence 
our high school career and 
curriculum was the farthest 
thought from our mind on 
that memorable day as we 
found ourselves lost in a 
maze of corridors and strug- 
gling to overcome the pre- 
dominance of the upper class- 

Gradually we accustomed 
ourselves to the situation, 
however, and soon our feet were on the ground 
and our minds on our books. Our first test of 
responsibility was in electing class officers, with 
the following results: John Joyce, president; 
Marie Dion, auditor; Norman Belliveau, vice- 
president; and Paul Washburn, secretary-treasurer. 

Although the High School was a fascinating 
place to us, we appreciated our Christmas vaca- 
tion. After the holidays were over, we reverted 
our busy minds to thoughts of our own affair, 
the Sophomore Social. This was capably man- 
aged by Dick Blanchard, and as everyone turned 
out for this gala occasion, it was a success. For 
the rest of the term we continued to work and 
toil toward the goal of promotion. 

Upon becoming juniors we realized that life 
was not quite so lowly, that our teachers were 
really human, and that the Waltham High School 
was not such a massive place after all. We dis- 
covered a new aspect of life and prepared our- 
selves for a long and tedious year by electing new 
class officers, who were Charles Butler, president; 
Nancy Calkins, vice-president; Jeanne Franks, 
secretary-treasurer; and Marie Dion, auditor. 


Writer of Class History 

School activities became more 
interesting, and many of us 
took a prominent part in the 
Dramatic Club, competitive 
sports, and dance committees. 
During our second year we 
found out what real work and 
study were; and it took quite 
a bit of endurance to keep 
from suffering complete dis- 

The Junior Prom was a 
pleasant and welcome diver- 
sion, with Freeman Murphy 
as its chairman, assisted by a 
capable committee. This was 
our first formal affair, and 
for many of us it was one 
first formal affair, and for many of us it was one 
that will long be remembered. The long-awaited 
month of June finally presented itself, and the 
following summer vacation was filled with the an- 
ticipation of becoming seniors. 

At last we reached the climax of our high 
school career. Little did we realize at the begin- 
ning of the term how quickly it would pass. We 
bought our weekly share of war savings stamps 
and read about Midway and Guadalcanal in the 
newspapers — but the outset of the second year 
of the war had even a more direct influence 
over the pupils of our high school. In the As- 
sembly Hall on that first day of school, many of 
the boys who had been juniors were noticeably 

The question of whether schoolboy football 
games would be able to continue set everyone's 
nerves on edge, for what would our school life 
be without football and its heroes? Transporta- 
tion was the chief worry, but it was readily solved 
by using private cars or taxis to carry the team 
to inter-city games. We were all relieved that 


v>l3.SS Or 1^/43 '^•"•■» | »^"«*' > «»"^"^»-^"«»<'^<'-«=-<>«^<'-^'<« 

football was destined to remain as king of sports 
for at least one more autumn season. 

Seniors Richard Segien, Charlie McCarthy, 
Stanley Kakis, and Royce Taylor did some out- 
standing playing on the gridiron. Dick Reed 
suffered a bitter disappointment by seriously in- 
juring a leg in his first game, in which he played 
center, so he was unable to continue in the sport 
for the rest of the year. Although our record 
was merely average over the course of the more- 
than-difficult schedule, our sparkling right end, 
Captain Johnny Furdon, was rewarded with All- 
Scholastic mention by many of the Boston papers. 

Those holding positions in the Senior Admin- 
istrative Board, and therefore our permanent 
officers are Paul Washburn, president; Shirley 
Gray, vice-president; Ruth Spicer, secretary-treas- 
urer; and Bert Powers, auditor. The Senior 
Nominating Committee consisted of Royce Taylor, 
Patricia Forster, Irene Joyal, Al Dion, Joan Tur- 
ner, Mary McKinnon, William Walsh, George 
Anderson, and Harriet Bruya. 

Our Senior Dance also was affected by the con- 
ditions of the period. The shortage of local man- 
power, together with the everlasting transporta- 
tion problem, caused much apprehension on the 
part of the committee. Because of a new fire 
prevention law we were deprived of any decora- 
tions whatsoever. Richard Segien, who was chair- 
man, and his fellow workers overcame all ob- 
stacles and succeeded in sponsoring a very enjoy- 
able affair. 

At the half year we felt more changes. This 
time it was in our curriculum. The study of 
mathematics was built up in every course. Me- 
chanics was stressed in the study of physics. All 
English classes had general discussions on current 
events so the pupils could have a better knowl- 
edge of what we are fighting for. Both the girls 
and the boys relinquished their study periods for 
extra gymnasium classes. The boys' instruction 
developed so well that it adopted the appropriate 
name of "Commando" training. 

Several after-school classes were added for those 
who wished specialized courses. Many boys en- 
rolled in pre-flight aeronautics, which met twice 

a week. Mr. Hollis's curriculum for the subject 
included the construction, maneuvering, and oper- 
ation of a plane. A course in the study of radio 
also interested a number of boys, Mr. Hollis 
handling this progressive work in addition to his 
many other duties. The members listened to 
records made in code and copied down messages 
in longhand as one part of their work. 

Because of the demand for more practical arts, 
cafeteria classes were held to teach the girls more 
about Victory foods and how to cook in quantity. 
Surgical dressing groups were conducted after 
school where the members rolled bandages as an 
aid to Red Cross work. The Practical Arts course 
stressed more general nursing and homemaking. 
Many pupils were already involved in volunteer 
Red Cross service throughout the year. Yes, 
every member of Waltham High School pulled 
together to be able to face better what was ahead. 

Although boys were leaving nearly every day 
to enter the armed services, some st : ll remained 
to carry on capably our hockey and basketball 
teams. With Joe Madden as captain on the ice 
the team got off to a beautiful start. As it seems 
to be Waltham's tradition, after a few winning 
games, our team slowed down a bit. Near the 
close of the season, however, the boys picked up 
considerably until they achieved fourth place in 
the league standing and took part in the playoffs. 

Our basketball team of 1943 was a valiant one. 
In the middle of the season it had to adjust iteslf 
after the loss of its starring captain, Connie 
Erickson, who enlisted for service with the great- 
est team of all, that of the U. S. Navy. A little 
later Bob Dorval duplicated this noteworthy act, 
but our basketball boys persisted, and in the final 
game of the season, they won a brilliant victory 
when they managed to halt Watertown in its ef- 
fort to be selected for the Tech Tournament. 

In connection with this year, 1943, we must 
mention the sincere efforts with which both the 
teachers throughout the city and our Waltham 
High girls handled the vital problem of rationing 
foods and other materials. The teachers did the 
actual computation of quotas, while the pupils 
performed the duties of ushering. 

Class of 1943 

During the entire year, the sale of war savings 
stamps was conducted every week in the home- 
rooms throughout the school. A large percentage 
of pupils in each class bought their stamps reg- 
ularly until the total sale on March 17 reached 
$4,577.50. This was accomplished in the course 
of seven months, and we are all proud of it! 

Because of the difficul prevailing conditions 
and restrictions, the annual Senior Play had to be 
cancelled. We all thought that it would have 
been fun to have it, but with the Dramatic Club 
carrying on as usual and other activities taking 

up quite a bit of our time, we were not too dis- 

And now we are gathered here — mindful of 
the fact that we, as a class, have necessarily been 
deprived of a few of the peace-time privileges. 
But in years to come, it will be the little things 
about which we shall reminisce wishing with all 
our hearts, that we could spend at least one day 
back in good old Waltham High School. Then 
through the mist we shall see the word 
"Excelsior", which will serve to renew our pledge 
of "Onward and upward " forever! 

Harriet Bruya 


We flew one day high in the blue . 
Above the sea, we pilots new. 
From far U. S. we'd just come here 
To fight for the ones that we. ho Id dear. 

We cruised along up in the sky 
Formation flying, ceiling high. 
Echelon, then section "V" 
And then, ahead, the enemy. 

Our skipper led us to the fight; 
It really was a glorious sight. 
Planes versus planes, man against, man ; 
I'll, never -forget how that fight began. 

We dived; our Brownings roared and chattered. 
German slugs, our windshields shattered. 
Then in my sights a Teuton plane; 
It crashed below, its pilot slain. 

The fight half over and I not hit, 
Then hard on my tail a Messerschmitt. 
I looped and snared him in my sight; 
My first shot burst killed him. outright; 

The planes reformed in echelon.. 
We grimly noticed two planes gone, 
And each to himself swore a silent oath 
To fight, remember, and avenge them both. 

We remembered that fight throughout the war, 
Avenging those two a hundred times more. 
But more than all when we look back, 
We remember the Skipper's terse, "Attack!"

BE it remembered that we, 
the Class of 1943, be- 
ing of sound and disposing 
mind and memory and wish- 
ing to direct in what manner 
our possessions shall be dis- 
posed of after our departure, 
do make and publish this, 
our last will and testament. 
After the payment of our 
just debts, we bequeath and 
devise as follows. 

To Mr. Goodrich, our 
greatest supporter and 
staunchest friend, who has 
listened to all our troubles 
and excuses and still retained 
his self-control, we leave the 
senior class of 1944, who, we are sure, will live 
up to the ideals of Waltham High School. We 
commend Mr. Goodrich for the valuable work he 
has done, and hope that his future years as head- 
master will prove as successful as those of the 

To Mr. Ward, that immortal submaster, who 
has made more good citizens than a dozen history 
books, we bestow this permit which will allow 
him to enter the Boston Public Library at any 
time during its visiting hours and explore the 
countless volumes of great masters. 

To Mr. Morang we leave this thought: through 
the years to come we will remember our teacher 
of chemistry who could give out those hard knocks 
which served their purpose. So we say with all 
seriousness, "You have what it takes." 

To Miss Clement, our professeur of French, 
we leave a year's supply of vitamin pills which 
she surely must use to produce in her pupils such 
pep, vim, and vigour. They may be taken ac- 
cording to the directions, but if an especially dif- 
ficult class is present, we suggest a double ration. 


Class Will 

To Miss Flagg we leave 
our thanks and sincere grati- 
tude for everything. Perhaps 
when you are wlecoming new 
senior classes, you will give 
us a little thought and re- 
member some of those boys 
and girls 'way back in "43". 
To Miss Scottron, whose 
exuberant energy knows no 
bounds, we offer this toast 
of love and esteem: We shall 
never be able to repay you 
for all the assistance you have 
given us and for all those 
pleasurable hours we have 
spent in 206. May "excel- 
sior" also be your motto. 
To Miss Woodward, idol of career women, we 
leave a staff to lean on when the work becomes 
too onerous. However, knowing Miss Woodward 
as well as we do, we doubt if it will be needed. 
To the graduating class of "1944" we present 
on behalf of "Butch" Segien the proceeds of the 
Senior Dance, which if it be anything, may be 
used in anyway whatsoever as long as it does not 
interfere with the carrying out of this will. 

To the cafeteria, commonly known as the 
dungeon, we leave the blueprints of a new open- 
air dining room equipped with an orchestra in 
the hope that, while music soothes a savage breast, 
it might also improve the condition of the poor, 
slaving student. 

We hereby nominate Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Mosher, 
and Mr. Hood, all of Waltham, County of Mid- 
dlesex, and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, as 
co-executors of this, our last will and testament, 
in testimony whereof we hereunto set our hand 
and in the presence of three witnesses declare this 
to be our last will this second day of June in the 
year one thousand, nine hundred and forty-three.

Codicil To The Last Will and Testament 

Be it remembered that we, the Class of 1943, 
being of sound and disposing mind and memory, 
and wishing to direct in what manner our estate 
shall be disposed of after our departure, do make 
and publish this, the codicil to our last will and 
testament, hereby ratifying and confirming said 
will in all respects except as changed by this 

We hereby nominate and appoint Cynthia 
Beaver executrix of this, the codicil to our last 
will and testament, and we hereby request that 
she be exempt from furnishing any surety or 
sureties on her official bond. 

To Richard Worrell, our boy most likely to 
succeed, we leave this pair of loaded dice; not 
to be used for pleasure, but as a protection against 
the scavengers that pursue the successful man. 
If this vice should become a hobby, we offer the 
Book of Knowledge as a diversion. 

To Shirley Gray, that protegee of Einstein, the 
girl whose report card produces a sigh from the 
less fortunate and whose brains will surely earn 
a million, we leave this government edition on 
"How to Pay Your Income Tax and Still Live." 

To Paul Washburn, the man whose right arm 
is in a cast most of the time from signing auto- 
graphs, the darling of the senior class and our 
most popular boy, we present this "Home Wav- 
ing Set" so that he won't disappoint his fans on 
the days the beauty parlors are closed. You can 
make your own, Paul. 

To Marie Dion, the most popular girl, with 
personality plus, we leave this little black book 
with the names and addresses of the boys from 
the senior class now in the Service. We expect 
Marie to spread a little of that sunshine. 

To Paul Hill whose good looks are the envy 
of men from coast to coast (who with a mustache 
would look like Clark Gable), we leave this mask 

to conceal and protect his face from windburn, 
sunburn, and over-zealous women. 

To Louise Johnson, our best-looking girl, that 
dazzling blonde who makes everyone look twice, 
we bestow this slave bracelet, a token from the 
poor captured Class of 1943. 

To "Funky" Lyon, the class clown and organ 
grinder's delight, we leave this chain that may 
prove of use to a certain brown-eyed senior or 
to that little man with the musical box. 

To Roy Ostrand, who has been chosen best- 
dressed among the boys and who has forsaken 
civilian clothes for the best suit of all, the uni- 
form of the United States Army, we bestow this 
pair of spats to protect his highly polished shoes 
and to hide ankles grown thin from too much 

To Marie Cannistraro, whom we consider the 
best-dressed girl in the senior class, we present 
that common and everlasting institution, the safe- 
ty pin, that she may never be caught in a situa- 
tion with which she could not cope. 

To Ruth Spicer, brightest social light, we leave 
this harmful little canine, man's best friend, who 
should do his part in keeping the wolves away 
from the door. "Beware of the dog, boys!'' 

To John Furdon, this year's edition of Flash 
Gordon, we present this pair of dumbbells from 
the collection of Charles Atlas, the great muscle 
builder, who feels that with a little training from 
"Your Daily 1, 2, 3's", presented every Monday 
morning, and a correspondence course that army 
life will not be so bad. 

To Mary Castellano, the most Athletic Girl, we 
present this can of 3-in-l oil, whose sole purpose 
is to lubricate those rusty joints when they be- 
come stiff from over-exercise. 

Lastly having disposed of all our earthly goods 
and burdens and paid our just debts, we leave this

warning to the occupants of that grand old school, 
"Don't carve your name on the desk, because your 
estate can be attached always for a can of varnish." 

We hereby nominate and appoint Miss Calla- 
nan, Miss Spencer, and Miss Eaton as co-executors 
of this, the codicil to our last will and testa- 
ment, and we hereby direct said executors to pay 
all our just debts and costs of administration out 
of our estate. We hereby request that they be 
exempt from furnishing any surety or sureties on 
their bonds. 

In testimony whereof we hereunto set our hand

There are flowers and voices in the purple dusk, 

Diamond lights in darkness, 
Good smells of pines, of wind and fragrant musk 

And violins with yearning sadness. 

There are tears, full laughter, sweet and deep 

Anger, futility, splendor, sweat, 
Tranquility of ocean in mighty silent sweep, 

The good security of friends well met. 

Rare beauty, shortly glimpsed; sharply cut 

In steel on life's brief page, 
And then the weighty, tender book is shut 

For all — for fool, for me, for sage.

Class Prophecy 


Writer of 

|N a bright, sunny sum- 
mer's day in the State 
of Oregon, while I was 
wearily plodding along a dus- 
ty road, thinking how nice it 
was to have escaped from 
that terrible industrial school 
where Hugh McGuire's cook- 
ing gave me indigestion, and 
Jimmy Shea's practicing of 
"Jersey Bounce" was almost 
unbearable, I found myself 
at some crossroads. Not 
knowing which way to go, I 
sat down under a gummy 
pine tree to meditate; then 
getting rather sleepy, I re- 
moved a well-used piece of 
Kleenex from my right shoe, placed it carefully 
under my left ear, and lay down to rest. Many 
pleasant day dreams of butter, shoes, coffee, 
sugar, gas, and meat were running through my 
head, when the sound of a motor approaching 
on the right hand road brought me to attention. 
Immediately recognizing the occupant, I jumped 
up and hailed Nancy Calkins to a screeching stop 
on her modern design scooter. "Well, fancy 
meeting you", I said, "and whither art thou 

"Wal, I got a letter from Charlie Quigg, a mis- 
sionary in China, saying that he wouldn't be able 
to get home for Waltham's World Fair this next 
year. I needed the exercise, so decided to ride 
across the country and tell Chairman Dick Hovey 
the news, but it was such a long scoot that I stole 
Mary Abramo's vacuum cleaner motor just to make 
things easier, — besides, she never uses it. Wal, 
if I want to get there by winter, I'll be shovin' 
off. Good luck to ya' " — and she was gone. 

Following slowly in Nancy's dusty trail, I came 
to a little gray house on the outskirts of a town, 


Class Prophecy 

in front of which was hang- 
ing the eye-catching sign 
"Washings taken in — it's up 
to you, to wring." Boldly I 
walked up the tulip-bordered 
path and knocked on the 
door, which promptly caved 
in. Esther Gray herself came 
to see what was the matter, 
and invited me in for a three- 
minute chat only, as she was 
very busy. She told me that 
her husband, F. Frank Lyon, 
was working two shifts at 
the local saw mill tacking up 
union notices under the di- 
rection of that little buzz-saw, 
Marie Dion. However, fully 

convinced that she trusted him, I said my adieus 

and continued on my way to town. 

I had not advanced very far when I saw a mov- 
ing van curiously parked horizontally across the 
road. Walking around to the open back, I peered 
in just in time to see Alan Kniznik slip an extra 
ace to Joe Steed in their somewhat crooked game of 
cards with opponents, Dick Meade and Fran 
Waldron, "Hey, little chum!" yelled Dick, as he 
turned over the sizzling egg in his hand. (I al- 
ways knew that lad would be hot stuff some day. ) 
"How's business?" 

"Not so good", said Joe, "but I know why. 
We took for our slogan 'If we can't move it, it 
burns', and people are just afraid to take a 

"No wonder", I quipped and retreated hastily 
amid a shower of cards. 

Walking aimlessly along the road again, I came 
to an arrow-pointed sign which read, "Airport — 
2 Miles". I looked to see how my shoes were 
taking it, and decided to venture. A convertible 
coupe was roaring along the road behind me, and 

as it reached the corner, Robert Fraser stopped 
and offered me a ride to the airport. Gladly ac- 
cepting, I hopped into the front seat, so as not 
to disturb Warren Perkins sitting in the rumble 
seat reading a book about how Charles Atlas 
makes men out of mice. Bob told me that he 
was chief mechanic to Bert Powers, who had a 
lot of trouble getting the plane off the ground 
for his daily flight to Porter's portico. "My, is 
that still going on!" I thought, but said nothing. 
Also, I learned that Alice Agopian had finally 
reached Hollywood and was starring in the new 
short "A. B. C.'s" opposite that handsome villain, 
Bud Hathorne. "I've seen it four times already", 
Bob confided, "just trying to remember that tech- 
nique". I also learned that Anna Gould, scoop 
reporter, said that Walt Disney has a sensational 
find in Priscilla Webb. 

Then we were at the airport. The car was 
left in the parking lot in charge of John Carney, 
a specialist in his line, and we walked towards 
the hangars. On one building George Kaitz and 
Richard Stanton were busily scrubbing windows, 
while Donald Robinson was gingerly holding the 
ten-gallon Windex bottle. You might have 
thought they could have, found a less "paneful" 
occupation, but at least they were assured of a 
bright and shiny future. Ah me! Suddenly 
death-defying screams pierced the air, and host- 
esses Shirley Hosmer, Margot von Romonatosky, 
Anne Antico, Margie Kelly, Alice Dow and 
Pauline Nanos came rushing out from one of the 
hangars, scattering in all directions. They were 
being chased by pilots Bill Bartel, Joe Rhodes, 
Chick Malloy, Roy Ostrand, and Sumner Blanch- 
ard. "My, those lads haven't changed a bit", I 
thought. As Sumner was the last one, I stuck 
out my foot thus — neatly tripping him. When 
he glared up at me from his ridiculous position, 
I deluged him with a multitude of questions. 
To my knowledge were added the facts that 
Dyson Kring was supervisor at John Warner's; 
that Charlie Tankel, Bob Hathorne, Dottie Sharpe, 
and Stan Kakis had a dance band and were tour- 
ing the Indian Reservations with dancer Mania 
("Queenie") Davis, and "duetists" Vera Dun- 
brack and Lillian Feneley; and that they had 

recently met up with imposter Alie Dion, who 
was selling rugs with the enticing line — "You 
bettee my carpet is a corkum". 

After leaving Sumner, I went into the lunch- 
room for a "snack" at the soda fountain. Herbie 
Darling, immaculate in purple shorts and a yellow 
"beanie", waited on me. Here I heartily enjoyed 
a three-sandwich lunch with two cups of coffee. 
But there was the little matter of paying, and I 
had no money for "Mai" Pearce, the cashier. She 
looked at me, and with her vocal rendition of a 
perfect high G, bouncer Angie Castellano ap- 
peared. With a playful little yank at my collar 
he cruelly ushered me into the kitchen to wash 
dishes. Here were Ruth Dacey, a dietician; Ruth 
Ham, the meat cutter; and Betty Owen, who was 
continuously screwing and unscrewing an olive 
bottle. They glared as I plunged the dishes 
viciously into the water, which was super-saturated 
with Ann Fisher's scrub suds for dishes. When 
the task was finished, I wearily walked out into 
the dusky evening. 

A group of ."females'" intrigued me; I stopped 
to watch their maneuvers. I recognized Cynthia 
Beaver, Mary Phipps, Yvonne Aucoin, and Ger- 
trude Green, who were vainly trying to lift man- 
hole covers in search of — you guessed it — men. 

Hearing angry voices behind a door to my left 
marked "Aircraft Routing, Malcolm Hayes" , I 
drew nearer to listen. I was startled when the 
door opened and Dick Blanchard came storming 
out, accompanied by Arthur Murphy and Paul 
Hill, who, I gathered, were all angry at Anthony 
Vanaria, their representative. It seemed that in- 
stead of mapping them out an airline route in 
Florida, as requested, Anthony spent all of his 
time on the beach drawing pictures of Veniette 
Caswell, Marie Cannistraro, Hope Stearns, Audrey 
Johnson, Erdine Conroy, and Louise Johnson. The 
girls deliberately enticed him by parading up and 
down on the beach, he vehemently declared. 

Overhearing that Emily Buckley, aviator, was 
flying Secretary of Labor, Claire W eagle, and Rear 
Admiral Bob Ohlsen to Waltham that night in 
plane No. 19, I hurried to that plane, strapped 
on a parachute, and stowed to await the departure. 
After what seemed ages, the plane shook with vi- 

brations, someone yelled "Good luck", and we 
were off. It was very dark, and there was no 
sound except the steady drum of the motors. How 
I would have relished one of Joanne Horgan's 
"Thrill for the Kill" murder books and a flash- 
light equipped with some of Agnes LaRosee's 
"Non-flattery batteries" in it, but wishful think- 
ing was to no avail. I was inclined to be air-sick, 
when I remembered a movie adapted from a play 
by that Latin derivative Pat Nudans — Peeling 
to most people. Its title was "Go to Bed.', U. S. 
Chief Librarian Richard Worrell and his associate 
Vincent Cacace, censors of love books and "stuff", 
acclaimed it as the season's best In the movie, a 
pilot jumped out of a plane, counted 1 to 7, 
couldn't remember the rest, and landed kerplunk 
in Yellowstone Park. Not intending to do just 
that, I carefully rehearsed my numbers, opened the 
baggage entrance, and jumped out. 10 ! I pulled 
the rip cord, and, with the parachute billowing 
above me floated to earth. As it was very dark, 
I could see very little, but I felt the ground as I 
came bumping almost onto the porch of a little 
cabin. Two figures in the shadows to my right 
sprang apart, and none other than Caesar {don't- 
bury-me) Joyce boomed out "Who's there?", 
"Me," I meekly replied, "where am I?" "Oh. 
this is Drury Lane" was the answer, and he dis- 
appeared into the deeper shadows. 

Finding the door, I rang the little tinkling bell. 
Professor "Mert" Olson, bug scientist, came to the 
door and cordially invited me in. We reminisced 
for a long time about our friends, our teachers, 
and the good old days at Waltham High. (Inci- 
dentally I found out that I was in Ohio.) Prof. 
Olson told me that Jean O'Neil was a good nurse, 
but found it difficult to secure employment since 
the time she was caught playing murder in the 
corridor with Doctor John Joyce, the hospital 
surgeon; that publishers Gladys Nottenburg and 
Virginia Winslow had established a local funny 
book factory, and were driving everybody crazy 
by publishing so many moron jokes. She also 
said that Joe Aiadden, Dick Reed, and Joe Demeo 
were full-fledged girl scouts in Harold Ferguson's 
pack, strange as it might seem. A queer world! 

And too, that Mayor Al Martin and Recreation- 
al Director Butch Segein were protesting the use 
of square balls in Jean Bowler's alleys, but did 
concede it to be a woman's world. On Prof. 
Olson's insisting that I have something to eat, 
we enjoyed together a hearty meal of pancakes, 
Shirley Gray's liquid fudge (something new), and 
one-half teaspoon of Bob Hansen's laughing livers, 
after which I departed. 

Feeling refreshed and happy and the day be- 
ing clear and cool, I had the urge to reach 
Knocksville, and stroll through the familiar Poirer 
Park, past Crosier' s toothpick mill, by Vincello's 
"Bicycles for Sale and Rent", and perhaps see 
Doris Foote's shoe shop. I made it. From a good 
vantage point I saw Doris in person supervising 
the wedging of Phillis Scamtnon's foot into a size 
three and a half pink and yellow striped pump, 
while floorwalker Bob MacDonald was occupied 
at the pushing end of this "superman" feat, with 
perspiration dripping from his chin. 

At a big bang behind me in the street, I turned 
around very quickly and saw Barbara Cheney, 
Ruth Spicer, Irene Joslyn, Irene Joyal, and Bar- 
bara Davis surprisedly disarranged in the back of 
a WAAC's paddy wagon. Royce Taylor and Lt. 
Harriet Bruya emerged from the cab, looking most 
unhappy as they surveyed the flat-as-a-pancake 
tire. From some source jacks appeared. Then 
they all settled down to play. 

This was too much for me. I was decidedly 
tired. An oak tree in the park offered friendly 
shelter and shade. Flinging myself under it, I 
immediately dropped off to sleep; for how long, 
I do not know. I was awakened by throbbing 
feet and a voice calling my name. Paul Wash- 
burn, local Chief of Police, stood over me, deep- 
ly absorbed in tapping the bottoms of my feet 
with his "billy" club. When or how I reached 
Waltham must ever remain a mystery. 

It was a dream — or was it? 

It would seem real, if anything is real that 

is part of yesterday. 
Rather say it was both yesterday and today. 

Joan E. Turner, 1943.

Waltham High participated in the weekly 
radio literary program "Of Books and Victory", 
broadcast over station WEEI, when Betty Ryan 
read a prize-winning review of Michael DeCapite's 
novel "Maria", and Beverly Myers gave a salute 
to the City of Waltham. 

Following are the compositions which won for 
them this honor: — 

"MARIA", l)y Michael DeCapite 
Reviewed by BETTY RYAN, '44 

"Maria" is the flesh and blood story of a valiant 
young American girl, daughter of immigrant par- 
ents, and of her life in a teeming city block. A 
child bride, unhappily married to the brutal, hand- 
some Dominic, she finds contentment and security 
in her children. 

Writing of a down to earth woman who lives 
in the hectic world of today, the author fills the 
pages of his book with all the happiness, the 
small tragedies, the humor and the frustration of 
everyday living. 

Michael DeCapite, the young author of this 
very moving novel, tells with complete under- 
standing of the problems confrontnig the immi- 
grant; the desperate struggle of some to learn 
our rules for success; the insurmountable barriers 
in understanding which separate the first genera- 
tion from the second, and the contempt of the 
American children for old world parents and 

With subtle simplicity it tells of the pathetic 
eagerness with which the alien attempts to be- 
come a part of our way of life. The underlying 
theme seems to be the author's conviction that 
only those who are willing to contribute their 
efforts toward a better America will eventually 
be assimilated into our scheme of things. But 
counteracting the sober vein of the novel is the 
swift humor and wit of Pepi, Maria's loveable 
father, while the sharp-tongued, shrewish Mama 
Rosalie, his intolerant wife, attempts futilely to 
repress him. 

The embodiment of all Maria's hopes in her 
children, her pride in their very average successes, 
her ultimate contentment as they reach a glowing, 
vital maturity, her yearning sorrow for the broken 
Paul are typical of American women everywhere 
and cast a hopeful ray on the future of the 

Here we have distinctive writing, with a warm 
understanding of people and of their emotions. 

The very appropriate simplicity of this novel 
leaves the reader's mind unhampered bv confus- 
ing ambiguities, free to delve into the wealth of 
characters so beautifully portrayed by this young 
and very promising author. 

By Beverly Myers, '44 

When strangers are introduced to residents of 
Waltham, Massachusetts, they often say, "Why, 
yes, of course I've heard of Waltham. The 
'Watch City' is it not?" Our commercial city's 
fame has been widely spread through the much 
publicized Waltham-made watches, and this is 
truly our major industry. At the present time, 
Waltham's plants and factories are fast at work 
producing materials so essential for victory, and 
Waltham is doing its part successfully in aiding 
the war effort. 

The first recorded exploration of the land, now 
comprised within the limits of Waltham, was on 
the twenty-seventh of January, 1632, when Gov- 
ernor Winthrop led a small expedition up the 
Charles River, eight miles from Watertown. Once 
explored, the colonization of the newly-founded 
town flourished. Waltham was the one hundred 
and forty-fifth town incorporated in the state, and 
the name was supposedly derived from the former 
inhabitants of Waltham Abbey, England. Wal- 
tham, the name of an English town, comes from 
two Saxon words, Weald-ham, meaning "Forest 
home." The name is very appropriate, for many 
of the remaining estates, such as the old Governor 
Gore estate, are existing proof of the beauteous 
wooded landscape, that can still be viewed and 
appreciated in many sections of the city. 

The first public town meeting was held January 
18, 1738, and an immediate provision was stipu- 
lated by the newly formed council, for the estab- 
lishmnet of a school. A church was also erected, 
and to the Pastor was granted a salary of 50 

pounds and 30 cords of wood. 

The exact date of the establishment of a high 
school is not known, but a report of the school 
committee is 1842, speaks of the difficulty of two 
teachers teaching 16 subjects to one hundred and 
eight scholars in a single room, so in 1869 a new 
building was erected at a cost of $50,000. Our 
present structure was erected in 1902, and later 
wings were added in order to accommodate the 
present enrollment, which numbers well over a

This is a big topic, but then America is a big 
place, a place which has thousands of cities and 
towns. All these towns have many things in 
common and one of the most important of these 
is Saturday night. It is one evening out of the 
week where from the big cities right down to the 
smallest village the lights shine, and people are 
either gay or sad. You could walk down any 
main street in America on Saturday night and 
you would see the buying and selling, the laughter 
and shouts, all signifying the evening that termi- 
nates another week. You might even call Satur- 
day night one of the great American institutions. 

Let us walk down some main street in our 
imagination on this night of nights. We first 
pass the pharmacist. There we see what is com- 
monly known as the "drug store cowboys", those 
"sharp" characters who know all the answers. We 
walk on down the street to Tony, the popcorn 
man; he is eternally turning out his popcorn and 
chasing the kids away. We next enter a depart- 
ment store crowded with women and their be- 
draggled husbands dragging after them. Then 
we just walk along the street viewing and admir- 
ing the lights, the lights that brighten everyone's 
face and send bright gleams of thought into 
everyone's mind. These are the things which to- 
gether have the meaning of the American way of 
Life. Although the lights I speak of are to-day 
dimmed out, they will all be on someday with a 
much brighter gleam; and with these lights will 
come a bigger and brighter Saturday night in

President, Bertrand Powers; Vice-President, 
Marie Dion; Treasurer, Shirley Gray; and Secre- 
tary, Richard Mongeon. These officers led the 
ever growing Dramatic Club this year with the 
membership we are proud to say of 125. 

All four classes of the High School have been 
extremely cooperative despite the turmoil of a war 
year. We had an enjoyable Christmas Party in 
which we gave up our usual gift-presenting pro- 
gram to donate our gifts and money to the Youth 
for Victory Council who, in turn, gave the col- 
lection to the U. S. O. for Waltham boys in the 

We were thankful to note that among our 
members, which consisted mostly of young wo- 
men, war and defense work having first call on 
the young men, there were those whose talent was 
appreciated in making our monthly meetings suc- 
cessful. We had more than one gathering based 
on local talent. Even with all the rationing, a 
committee of the Dramatic Club, headed by Hazel 
Boston and Anne Fisher, gave us refreshments 
at every meeting. 

Vying with the plays for top place in our 
calendar is the picnic which we usually have at 
the end of every school year, and which, this 
year, will be just, as successful even if we don't 
have "weenies." 

Finally, to complete the goings-on of 1943's 
Dramatic Club, we extend our sincere thanks to 
Miss Mehring, our faculty adviser for her patience 
and good humor at all times, especially during 
the period of practice of the two one-act plays 
and the two dramatizations which were given 
April 2, 1943, in the High School Auditorium. 
Our program was Tell the Truth, Dear, After the 
Air Raid, Romeo and ]uliet a. la Dramatic Club, 
and Pink for Proposals. The evening was finan- 
cially as well as dramatically successful. 

The Dramatic Club still stirs and holds interest 
in Waltham High School. We are determined to

Mix clever baton twirling with sundry acrobaik 
stunts, spice with plenty of auburn hair and the 
result is what you would expect — one of the 
top drum majorettes of New England. 


From the distance comes the sound of spirited 
music, then we see the bright colors of flags 
whipping in the breeze and columns of high 
stepping, baton-twirling girls in their white uni- 
forms. All eyes follow with approval the per- 
fect cadence and rhythm of the marching, baton- 
twirling, and acrobatic drum majorettes. Thus 
do they bring color and gaiety to our sports events. 

Among this group of talented young people is 
one who merits special mention. Aloyse Martin, 
high stepping majorette, has participated in the 
following contests and won prizes ranging from 
a Waltham Watch to a diamond ring. 

1. Boston Garden Contest, 1st prize 

2. Worcester Auditorium, 3rd prize 

3. Braves Field, Boston, 3rd prize 

4. Hotel Statler, Boston, 1st prize

Johnny was the outstanding player on 

this year's team winning all-scholastic 

recognition for his fine end play. 



Connie was noted for his tight defen- 
sive play at guard. He was an excel- 
ent scorer as well. 



On the basis of Gold statistics the team's record 
of four wins, one tie, and five losses was not im- 
pressive. A breakdown of the schedule, how- 
ever, shows that the competition from the open- 
ing to the closing game was terrific. Wins were 
registered over Class A teams Arlington, Law- 
rence, Haverhill, and Lynn English. Medford, 
Everett, Newton, Brockton, and LaSalle Academy 
of Providence were the teams defeating Waltham. 
Omitting LaSalle, an out-of-state adversary, these 
teams were the four top clubs in Class A in the 
State. The sole tie game was with Leominster, 
a scoreless deadlock. 

Had the team's running attack been as effec- 
tive as its forward passing more games probably 
would have been won. 

Johnny Furdon was the outstanding player on 
the club, winning all scholastic recognition. 
Koulopoulos and Erickson were the principal 
passers, with Driscoll, Gregorecus, and Chiarelli 
assisting. Dick Segien's brilliant punting helped 
the team out of many a tight spot. Other players 
who deserve mention are Dorval, M. Innis, Ro- 
mano, Coolidge, and Rigoli. 

An encouraging forerunner of the future is the 
number of veterans slated to return next year, the 
only regulars lost through graduation being Fur- 
don, Kakis, McCarthy, Britton, and Segien.

ances. Many a time they broke up enemy scoring 
surges. Stinehour's brilliant solo goals made him 
Waltham's only candidate for all-star honors. 

Both Joe Colletto and Tommy Page shared 
equal honors in the net-minding position. To- 
gether they turned aside many of the foes' shots. 

Harry Tapply, Bill Smith and Joe Rhodes were 
the other outstanding stars who accounted for 
many goals. 


By defeating Boston College High 4 to 0, Wal- 
tham ended the season with five victories, four 
losses, and one tie. This gave the Brinn hockey- 
ists eleven points, putting them into fourth place, 
behind Wellesley. 

Considering the fact that Coach Brinn had only 
one experienced veteran, he turned out a smooth- 
clicking sextet. 

In the defensive position Fred Jones and Russ 
Stinehour turned in better than average perform-

Displaying perhaps the best brand of basket- 
ball seen by the • Waltham rooters, the Crimson 
hoopmen triumphed over Watertown in the final 
game of the season by a score of 35 to 30. This 
triumph put Waltham in a three-way tie with 
Watertown and Cambridge Latin. 

When Art Quinn joined the armed forces, Jack 
Leary took over his coaching duties and did ex- 
ceptionally well. As the final standing showed, 
Waltham finished the season with 7 wins against 
5 losses. However, several of the losses were 
very close, with the Crimson hoopsters only 2, 3, 
or 4 points on the losing end. 

Each man tried his best at all times, and all 
made a good showing. Lenny Keyes, big Ai 
Rodenhizer, Carlo Scafidi, Bob Lally, and Paul 

Hill saw the most service, and each played an 
important part in the Waltham victories. 

Even with two of its most seasoned veterans, 
Connie Erickson and Bob Dorval in the Navy, 
the Crimson hoopmen continued to play good, 
all-'round basketball. Occasionally mistakes oc- 
curred; but the general floor play was good.

Basketball started after the Christmas vacation 
as usual, but, due again to wartime changes, many 
of our former competitors had dropped basket- 
ball with the result that there were no inter- 
scholastic games. There was an intra-class game, 
however, between our mighty Seniors and the 
Sophs. It was an exciting, well-fought game but 
too close for comfort. The Seniors came out on 
lop with but a two-point margin. The score at

Girls are doing everything these days! The 
latest achievement has been to take up "feminine 
commando" training in gym! It is difficult for 
us to confess that it is good for us — with the 
aches and pains we feel, but think what the boys 
go through! 

The bowling tournaments held every Tuesday 
and Wednesday from January through March, 
have been very successful. Naturally We cannot 
all make the teams, but it is fun to try and hold 
one's average or even go above once now and 
then. There were about twenty from each class 
there, and wind and cold kept few back. 

The teams ended with Shirley Gray high on the 
Senior list, Shirley Porter on the Junior list, Ruth 
Christiansen on the Sophomore list, and Louise 
Collins on the Freshman list. It is rather hard 
to believe, but the girl with the highest average 
of all is a Sophomore; and yet, not so hard to be-

The great day of reckoning 

came on April 6th, when the Seniors played the 
Juniors. The first string the Juniors topped the 
Seniors with 30 points. The second string, the 

Seniors struggled desperately and caught up. The 
third string was the crowning point of excitement

were next in line for the teams, for an informal

splendidly and the girls were very apt to cheer 
them into spares and strikes without really mean- 
ing to. The Varsity teams were very close on 
every string and the tension was great. It ended 
with the girls coming out with a very narrow 
margin of 30 pins. The whole afternoon was en- 
joyed by both faculty and pupils, and we all hope 
to meet again soon.
